Academic Flexibility: schedules are not really good

Tuition & Financial Aid: These guys will get you every penny they can from scholarships to grants to loans to VA funding and everything. You paying the tuition is in their interest as it affects their bottom line so they will search high and low to get you the necessary funding.

They are also EXTREMELY generous on the credit (aka a loan directly from the school) they give you for things not covered above. They have no problem waiting till you find a job to start paying, they don't charge you interest for the credit they give and they break it up into small manageable payments. They really do give you every chance possible to succeed.

However, there is a downside, and a fairly large one. The school is expensive. $45k for A.S. and another $45k for B.S. so you're looking at a $90k+ investment.

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility isn't a reason to come here. You have a pre-planned path to take and you don't generally deviate from it unless you're changing programs to another rigid path.

Credits don't transfer. That being said, it doesn't mean you don't learn anything here. You learn a lot, but coming here is a commitment. Either come here for the A.S. knowing and okay with the fact that credits don't transfer or stay for the B.S. Otherwise, go to another school.

There is one good bit of flexibility. Going from one ITT Tech to another at ANY time is extremely easy. If you're out of town you can even arrange to participate in a different nearby ITT Tech class so you don't miss out. As alumni you have access to all campuses and resources on each campus.

Campus Resources: I'll keep it simple. The Virtual Library is horrid. You're better off going to a real library. It's completely unorganized and not user friendly. You'd have to take a class to learn how to use it AND get lucky that the book you're looking for is actually in there.
Financial Aid is great. They will work with you.
Tutoring is great.
Labs are good although the LRC gets crowded with people writing papers at the end of the quarter. It usually isn't a problem if you want to use one of the other 2 computer labs, even if there is a class in it as long as you are quiet and respectful.
The Chair and Dean are both awesome instructors and awesome faculty.
All but 4 of the books are crap. AC, DC, Digital, and C++ were the only good ones.
The tools you get are cheap and sold to you way overpriced, but still extremely useful and good to train with. Getting replacement parts for non-working or broken stuff was rarely a problem and was usually given for free.
For electronics students, you can take A+ and ETA training and Certification tests here.

Student Body: There are 2 types of students at ITT Tech:

-Students that try to come here for the easy degree but don't want to put in the necessary work and simply expect everything to be handed to them.... Theses students usually end up dropping out.

-Students that actually care about learning the material. These students are usually the ones that graduate and the ones that actually end up getting decent jobs.

Online Courses: I never personally took an online course, however everyone that I know in the school that has taken one advised me not to unless it really wasn't an option. You do far more work and the instructors are not as friendly as they are on campus.

However, this is not my experience; only what I've heard.

Career Services: This grade is based off of the current Career Services and off the team before the current Career Services. All Career Services prior to these 2 teams would normally get an A+.

9 months and a total of 3 interviews and only 1 of which were actually related to my degree. The current career services is complete crap. They have a "can't do" attitude, they don't want to take the time to properly learn and do their job, and I'm actually moving out of state in 2 days to go to another ITT Tech's career services department in Atlanta. We had a job fair about a month ago and we had Target, Lowes, Wal-Mart, a couple of temp agencies, and some other non-electronic related employers come. I wish I hadn't wasted my time. They have LOTS of room for improvement and if I were the Director, they would have been gone after a month.

Student Body: im just starting out there so I really not sure. I only know what they tell me.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: i feel as though all the money im spending my education is well worth if and the aid im receiving im so much grateful for it. and I do believe in the near future I would be able to pay back all the student loans I took out. But im hoping to quality for a few scholarships to help me along the way. School is really expensive and you really don't understand all of that until you've already signed up, just to learn you have to take out a loan or two.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Comp II – This class was a little slow, but the teacher was terrific and it was an easy A as long as all homework was turned in and I showed up every week.
